Got an email yesterday from the Wash U crew that bring us Science on Tap. After taking time off for the holidays, this stimulating event is back at the Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood starting January 28th. Seating is limited and there are no reservations so first come first seated!
he details are:
I hope you had a nice holiday break. We resume Science on Tap this Wednesday, January 28th, 7pm-8:30pm at the Schlafly Bottleworks, Crown Room, in Maplewood at 7260 Southwest Ave. We kick off the New Year with a very timely topic: Collateral Damage: Houses, Finance and the Economy by Dr. Gaetano Antinolfi, Associate Professor of Economics at Washington University. Dr. Antinolfi has been a visiting scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and is an expert on banking. His research examines issues in macro, monetary and international economics.
“The economy entered a recession approximately one year ago. Many people believe economic conditions are likely to further worsen in the near future and remain dire for quite some time. Many of the elements that contributed to this crisis can be traced to the housing market, the financial products and policies that developed around it and the international economic conditions. We will discuss some of the issues that led to the present situation, the current polices meant to address it, and international aspects of the crisis.”
Dr. Antinolfi is a favorite among Washington University students and we should have a good time consoling each other as we learn more about this complex situation!

Science On Tap is a free event, but seating is limited and there are no reservations. We meet on the last Wednesday of the month during the academic year.
